The government proposes abolishing the expiry date.

The draft law is intended to ensure financial stability, debt sustainability of the country, and prevention of the negative impact of potential cases of default on external obligations of the state. Removing the deadline will extend the period of validity of the legal basis for searching further ways to restructure external obligations as well as to strike deals on amending borrowing conditions.
